Minnesota Student Leader Falsely Accuses Police of Racism

Minneapolis has been torn to pieces by riots inspired by unsubstantiated allegations of police racism. This makes a hate hoax at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities a matter of playing with fire:

Earlier this month, a student posted on Instagram that he was stopped by campus police because he is “a brown man” and said he was afraid he “would be shot.”

The police stopped him in the street at 2 a.m. and asked him a few questions because he seemed to match the description of a robbery suspect. This left the crybully snowflake “mentally and emotionally tormented with an experience that will last a lifetime.”

He concluded his post by calling the situation the “most traumatic thing” he has “ever experienced.”

Would that everyone’s life could be so sheltered. But then, that might leave us all as soft as moonbats.

“Now, after having some time to think about this, to process, and to come to the senses that the thing/the situation that I hoped would never happen to me — happened. It was brutal,” said the student.

The allegedly brutally oppressed student, who has been identified as Nikil Badey and who holds a position in student government, tried to rally the mob to barrage school administrators with emails so as to hold the campus police “accountable” for daring to question a suspect even though he self-identifies as a Person of Color.

In response, the school’s Department of Public Safety released a dashcam video and transcript of the incident. The video shows that the officers immediately believed the student, apologized to him, and explained why he was stopped. It also appears that the officers initially thought the student was white.

You can see why leftists like Associate Attorney General designate Vanita Gupta are not so keen on bodycams. A video record makes it harder to fake oppression.

Hate Hoaxer Vandalizes His Own BMW

Liberal ideology relies upon a never-ending epidemic of racist aggression toward blacks, despite this having become a virtually nonexistent phenomenon. That’s why the demand for manufactured hate crimes continues, even if by now we can smell these hoaxes a mile away. Progressives yearn for opportunities to wrap alleged victims in a warm embrace of condescending pity. But hoaxers are advised not to get insurance companies involved.

From Buffalo:

Erie County District Attorney John Flynn announced Tuesday that, Clifton Eutsey, 18, allegedly spray-painted messages of hate on his own car in North Buffalo.

Swastikas, the N-word, KKK and profanity against Black Lives Matter were spray-painted all over the car, a BMW X5. The police report also stated that sugar was poured into the gas tank.

Exposed hate hoaxers usually get a wrist slap at worst. They may even be excused for trying to “raise awareness” of the supposed crisis of white supremacism. This time might be different. Eutsey has been charged with insurance fraud, a felony.

There was also a message of support for President Donald Trump that was also spray-painted on the car…

When he gets out of jail, Eutsey should go to work for the mainstream media.

NFL Gives Apparent Hate Hoax Second Life

Hate hoaxes are so common because they are an effective means of acquiring sympathetic attention — sometimes even after they have been exposed.

Readers will recall that Althea Bernstein claimed to have been set on fire by racist white frat boys during a black supremacist riot in Madison last June. Unsurprisingly, authorities found it impossible to corroborate her story, though they certainly tried.

For being oppressed, Althea got to be queen for 15 minutes. Meghan Markle and her adjutant Prince Harry called her on the telephone. Good Morning America featured her for adoration.

The party couldn’t last forever. Via Breitbart:

By October 2, the Madison Police Department released a statement, saying, “after an exhaustive probe, detectives were unable to corroborate or locate evidence consistent with what was reported.”

The case was also investigated by the FBI and the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. Both agencies agreed with the local police. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Wisconsin ultimately said that “after reviewing all available evidence, authorities could not establish that the attack, as alleged by the complainant, had occurred.”

After that, press access to Althea was cut off, presumably to guard against the remote possibility that anyone from the mainstream media would follow up after her story had collapsed. Her 15 minutes were over.

Or maybe not:

[A]lmost two weeks after Bernstein’s case was dismissed by every agency that investigated her claims, the NFL was pushing the young woman as an example of “inspiring change.”

Why not? If Nike could pass off Colin Kaepernick as an athlete who sacrificed his career for leftist politics (he was a fading benchwarmer before he started with the kneeling theatrics), the NFL can present Althea Bernstein as an inspirational victim of racism. Beggars can’t be choosers when it comes to finding support for the Black Lives Matter narrative.

Althea Bernstein Maybe Not Set on Fire by Racists After All

There is no shortage of black on white violence out there. It’s when your narrative requires the violence to go the other way that you have to rely on hoaxes. Looks like we might have yet another one:

18-year-old Althea Bernstein said that she was attacked by four white males while she was driving through a protest in Madison, Wisconsin, in June. She claimed that the men yelled a racial slur at her when she stopped at a red light, and someone sprayed lighter fluid on her before lighting her on fire.

Bernstein appears to have some African ancestry.

As you might expect, the liberal establishment was on this like a half-starved tiger on a t-bone. Yamiche Alcindor of taxpayer-subsidized PBS championed her cause. Royal moonbats Meghan Markle and her sidekick Prince Harry awarded Bernstein with a phone call.

Good Morning America yanked on the heartstrings:

Predictably,

A team of local and federal law enforcement officials investigated the matter as a hate crime, but instead they might have uncovered a hate hoax.

In their 150-page report, they documented extensive interviews and surveillance video to come to their conclusion that the attack did not occur as Bernstein reported it. They also said that an arson dog was unable to find any evidence of her story in the car, and they noted that the car was not damaged in the attack.

What are the odds GMA will do a follow-up, now that information undermining her story has unsurprisingly come to light?

Some suspect Bernstein burned herself with a Molotov cocktail, considering where and when the alleged event took place. Via AP:

The alleged assault came during a night of violence that included the toppling of two statues outside the Capitol and an attack on a state senator. A group of up to 300 people protested the arrest of a Black man after he shouted at restaurant customers through a megaphone while carrying a baseball bat.

According to investigative documents, Bernstein told the responding officer she is Hispanic and Black.

Someone also threw a Molotov cocktail into a government building and attempted to break into the Capitol, only to be repelled by pepper spray from police stationed inside.

It strains credulity that Bernstein was set upon by white supremacists while driving through a Black Lives Matter riot.

Tim Pool takes a more balanced approach than GMA:

All Lives Matter: Probable Hate Hoax in Charlotte

The Overton window has been pushed so far to the left, and hate crimes against allegedly oppressed identity groups are so rare, that graffiti reading “All Life Matters” as opposed to “Black Lives Matter” is probably a hate hoax.

From Charlotte, North Carolina:

Police are investigating after someone spray painted “ALM” and “All Life Matters” on the NASCAR Hall of Fame. …

The graffiti was spotted in at least 10 areas near the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

The suspected culprit is Demarkis Dunlap, age 19.

The incident comes the morning after people gathered through Uptown to protest against this week’s Republican National Convention.

Just a wild guess: Dunlap was not motivated by an urgent compulsion to persuade the world that all lives matter. More likely, the idea was to make people think “white supremacists” did it.
